Defensive coordinator Chuck Amato told the Beacon Journal in an interview that he wanted to see more emotion out of his players. He got it Tuesday, but they had reason to crow.
The defense forced three turnovers, including two that went for TDs. One came on a fumble recovery for a score from cornerback Bill Alexander. The other came on a pick six.
The defensive line was just as active as the secondary batting down multiple balls at the line, one coming from James Price. There’s been little or no drop off in the play of defensive end Albert Presley since the team put on pads.
Offensively, quarterbacks Dalton Williams and Clayton Moore threw well deep and wide receiver A.J. Price impressed with some of his catches, including burning the defense for a TD on a deep reception from Moore.
Track athlete turned wide receiver Phil Ferguson had an up-and-down morning, making a difficult catch on a deep route, but dropping the ball on a short pass meant to be taken up the seam.
Running back Broderick Alexander had some nice runs, but dropped what would have been a touchdown on a deep pass down the middle of the field.
Running back Karl Bostick officially left the team Tuesday.
